Can anyone explain the whole SQL vs NoSQL thing to me?

No.78449210 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Not why NoSQL was created. Not strengths and weaknesses of both approaches.

I want to know how these databases store data on disk and how they actually run queries for example.

I am a PIO for a small time company that wants certain files available off line and be cell phone accessible . Would the easiest thing to do be to make an app with the files contained in the app and have the app use an email out option?

The idea is we go to places with no cell service or WiFi and end up needing specific forums. Any ideas?

Laptop recommendations for DOS/FreeDOS.

No.78449238 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Aye lads, how are we all?
I am looking for a fairly recent laptop thats like a thinkpad that has both Ethernet and sound drivers that work in DOS/FreeDOS.
I just love the idea the idea of using something for retro pc games on the go, and unfortunately DOSBox requires a lot of fiddling for some games to work correctly. One instance is that I tried to play the original DOS version of quake in Dosbox and it ran in double speed.
I have installed freeDOS on my 2015 Macbook a while back, ran Quake and everything was perfect; the only issue was the fact there were no sound drivers or networking and I couldn't find anything on the internet that is compatible. What laptop would you guys recommend for FreeDOS with at least support for sound drivers and Ethernet.
That'll be all.

Okay /g/. I am on board with changing from an Intel-nVidia build to all AMD. I'm going to buy one of the new processors and a 500 series board in November and, assuming the benchmarks hold up, the 6900XT in December. My question to you is: what manufacturers are best for an AMD graphics card? For nVidia I've only ever bought EVGA, who are a fantastic company. In fact, they're in the process of replacing my 850W PSU with a 1000W PSU which will have another 10 year warranty.

tl;dr who are the best AMD graphics card manufacturers
